    I did this

    ''Ok first, you need the latest R4 firmware, v 1.18 (as of writing):
    http://www.r4ds.com/download-en.htm

    Next you want the Code Manager from Datel:
    US version:
    http://us.codejunkies.com/nds_actionreplay/SetupUS1_05.exe
    Euro version:
    http://us.codejunkies.com/nds_actionreplay/SetupEU1_05.exe

    Finally you want the R4 Cheat code editor:
    http://www.r4ds.com/download-en.htm
    or if the site is down, then get it here:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/32954884/Cheat_code_editor.rar

    Now it gets easy :-D
    Update you MicroSD card with the new firmware
    Install the Code Manager.
    1. Under Subscriptions right click Codejunkies US Games and select copy if you want all or just do this for games you want.
    2. Under My Codelists right click and select paste.
    3. Let it import the games into your codelist.
    4. Once it has completed go this folder:
    C:\Program Files\Datel\Action Replay Code Manager\local_codelists

    Find the XML, it should say something along the lines of customcodelist.xml

    Open the Code Editor and go to file and press Import XML file.

    Import the one you just made and then go to file and Save As cheat database. Save it as usrcheat.dat.

    Now open the card again and navigate to the system folder. Copy the new usrcheat.dat file to that folder and you are done smile.gif
    ''

    I tried changing the firmware several times. I don't see a cheat option. Theres a CHEAT thing and then my USRCHEAT. i tried deleting cheat, i tried not deleting cheat. pressing y does nothing.

    i have exhausted my options and spent over an hour trying to get it working. help!?

    i can play every game ive wanted to play on my r4 for nearly 3 years now. it serves me well. but i never have gotten action replay to work HOWEVER i recall in the past seeing the cheat menu but never doing anything with it but now i dont even see it anymore. that led me to believe it may be because i needed old firmware but that didnt work either.

    I would use YSMenu (if it's the real R4) and just upload the USRCHEAT.DAT file into it. It would make things like a billion times easier.

    download the latest cheat database from the TEMP folder
    of cheats.gbatemp.net

    i will assume you have all the GAME ID and everything else is correct
    however, make sure game and cheats are ENABLED on your r4 menu
    you need both of them to be enabled in order to choose the CODES

    EDIT:
    when i say GAME ID is correct i mean you are playing with CLEAN ROM (non-patched)[​IMG]
    if your game is patched and there would be a reason why you can't get the cheat to work for you\

    EDIT2:
    if you are using r41.18 as your firmware, i will suggest you to use ysmenu or r4li's r4 firmware!
    there is a bug in the r41.18 firmware restricts the availability of games with cheats
    usually you won't see games start from O-Z
